Canadian GIS and Geomatics

 

Canadian Employment Resources

25

One of the hardest jobs to do during your career can often be finding the job itself, especially in such a niche industry like Geomatics. However the increased use and exposure of the Internet has led to many great resources to help you out and we have taken the best resources and posted them here to help you. Geomatics employment has always been a hot topic in Canada – this page is one of the oldest ones on the site (published back in 2006) and still gets over 2000 views a day.

If you know of any good Geomatics Employment web sites or resources that are not listed here then let let me know so I can post them here and share the with others.

Canadian Employment sitesJobs in GIS & Geomatics for Canadians

Geomatics Geo Employment was one of the first Canadian only GIS employment web sites designed to help Canadians find jobs in the GIS industry with out the need of moving to the USA. The site has been online since 2004 and has helped thousands of young professionals find Canadian GIS jobs.  It has evolved over the years, recently partnered with CanadianGIS.com, and now provides jobs in all aspects of Geomatics. There is also now a LinkedIn Group that focuses just on Canadian GIS & Geomatics jobs. And it is free to join.
